Villa las Tronas Hotel and Spa is the ideal place to stay in Alghero. The small five-star hotel sits pretty in a spectacular setting on a point jutting out into the sea. It’s just a short and beautiful stroll into Alghero’s old town. Each of the 24 rooms and suites is unique. Many have a sea view or view of Alghero. Once the holiday villa of a royal family, this hotel still retains its elegant charm and atmosphere of peace and privacy.
Set in a spacious garden, the hotel has an outdoor swimming pool, private access to the sea for swimming, small boat dock, and even a helicopter landing. Inside the spa is a large seawater swimming pool, Turkish bath, sauna, and lounging area.
The hotel’s restaurant serves dinner in the panoramic restaurant or on the terrace in nice weather. Other restaurants are a short stroll away. In fact, the short stroll brings you to:
Bastioni Cristoforo Colombo Lungomare, the walking street along the sea, is one of the most beautiful city walks anywhere. The bastione (city walls) Lungomare has been updated (in a rather Catalan style) and folks stroll along the bastione (city walls) –kids play, music wafts by, and there’s plenty of room, unlike the narrow little streets (that shelter you from midday heat) of the old down. In the evening, Alghero’s version of the Italian passeggiata is one of the best and liveliest in Italy. ~ Alghero, Sardinia Guide
To plan a trip considering the weather, explore the climate charts and current weather of Alghero. Beaches, like the Lido San Giovanni in the heart of Alghero, will be open from mid June to mid-September. Be aware that those beaches will get really busy on Ferragosta, the middle of August. If you have a car, head north between Fertilia and Porto Conte to experience Lazzaretto beach, next to the 14th century tower of the same name.
